obama care in e process. governor romney is one of the great stories over the last two years that he's been running. at bottom, at heart, he's proud of the law. he tried toind a way in the primaries to be for his own law and not give that up and say i'm oud wt wid actt he kw he couldn't be -- he had to figure out a way to be against obama care. he found himself in a ridiculous position of saying i love my own law but it's not good law for the rest of the country even though i said that in an op-ed two years ago. i claimed that to get through 'simpoible straddle and . one that maybe he had to do in order to get through the primary electorate now in this ridiculous position of having to -- he should be proud of the law. a law he is proud of. he hasn't been able to embre because ofhepled primary dynamics. this is where he should have been all along. it's hard to see it giving him political advantage it might have under other circumstans. >> it shows political weaknesses on mitt romney's part. the first is what conservatives haeeplngut pecially over the past month mainly off camera. he

've got a republican governor. and the beneficiary is president obama, not the republican candidate for president. >> kasich now one of the most popular governors in the country because they've come back. >> about the auto bailout, 88 counties in ohio, 82 counties that have parts suppliers that feed into the auto industry. 82 out of 88 counties feel directly the impact of the auto bailout. it's a huge thing. and on tom's point about medicare, you look at all the polling the last few weeks, the most striking thing, really the most striking thing that's happened is the gains president obama has made with seniors who have been the strongest -- the hardest, most out-of-reach demographic for him. they've moved him dramatically since the ryan selection, since medicare, bill clinton's arguments on medicare at the convention, it became central to the discussion, there's been a big shift towards obama in that category. >> this doesn't take medicare off the table. we still have to deal with this. >> you're exactly right. medicare and medicaid are unchecked going to cripple this country. we sa

the challenge mitt romney faces against president obama, the clearest shift from the debates came in the 2000 race pitting governor george w. bush of texas against vice president al gore. it resulted from a rare combination of factors with demonstrating effects on mr. gore's campaign. and i guess the question is, can mitt romney pull something that would really kind of just give people a page-turner on, a, his personality, which he doesn't appear to really have one beyond being a really nice person. no, i'm serious. he has to show empathy and sympathy and a connection with people that he hasn't up until now. or, steve rattner, to be more specific about his policies, which many argue he hasn't been very specific nor paul ryan. >> he hasn't been very specific. but i think his bigger problem is the first one you said. that he's got to create some sense of connectivity or relationship with the voters. i think that's really his goal as well as what we were talking about in the earlier segment of trying to bring a clear depiction of obama's policies and the fact they haven't done everything they we

advantage over obama. clinton had lost the governorship after being the youngest governor in the country. >> he governed in arkansas for ten years. dealt with conservative democrats and a very small republican party. >> the decision to turn came from when he lost in '80 and it was clear to both bill and hillary if they stayed on the hard left they'd be a one-term president as carter had been. the ability to turn goes back to what dee dee just said. being a governor, he and i always could communicate. we had some very tough, brutal fights. but there was some, we both had this compartmentalization that allows us to say okay. that was a really tough press conference. now how do we work this out? >> right. i sense real negotiations require you to listen carefully to the other person. not agree with him but listen carefully. try to figure out is there something we can start building to a yes on? and i sense that obama finds it really painful to listen to people because it's not who he is, not how he functions. >> i think to listen to republicans, i think again just because, dee dee, you said
